Bronco Stadium: Boise, ID

4 of 13

Whether crashing the Bowl Championship Series (small schools
just aren’t supposed to be there) or asking your cheerleader girlfriend to
marry you (on national TV) after upsetting Oklahoma in a bowl game, the Boise
State Broncos like to make their own rules. Even Bronco Stadium's bright blue
playing field—sometimes called the “Smurf Turf”—was the first non-green field
in college football and remains the only alternative color in Division One.
With a high-powered offense and a never-say-die attitude, little old Boise
State is one of the NCAA’s most entertaining teams to watch.

Team Tradition: The freaky blue turf.

Typical Chant: The call-and-answer, “And that’s another Bronco” “First-down”

Biggest Rival: University of Idaho and, nowadays, anyone
who says the Broncos don’t belong with the big boys of college football.

Postgame Hangout: End Zone.

Stadium Capacity: Approximately 33,500; broncosports.com.
